Match background Only this chapter

AS Roma have work to do if they are to overcome FC Shakhtar Donetsk and reach their first UEFA Champions League quarter-final since 2008.

•The Italian side opened the scoring in the first leg in Kharkiv, Cengiz Ünder breaking the deadlock four minutes before half-time on his competition debut. Goals in the second period from Facundo Ferreyra and Fred turned the match in Shakhtar's favour, however, giving them a slender lead to take to the Stadio Olimpico.

• Roma, who finished first in Group C this season, are in the round of 16 for the sixth time. However, they have not featured in the quarter-finals in a decade, and have lost their last three ties at this stage.

• Shakhtar have lost two of their three last-16 ties – the sole exception their first appearance, a 6-2 aggregate win against Roma in the spring of 2011.

Previous meetings
• Shakhtar recorded a comfortable victory against Roma when the teams met at this stage of the 2010/11 competition. First-half goals from Jádson (29), Douglas Costa (36) and Luiz Adriano (41) gave the Ukrainian side a 3-2 first-leg victory in Rome despite Razvan Raţ's own goal (28) and a Jérémy Ménez strike (61) for Roma.

Highlights: Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 Roma

• The line-ups at the Stadio Olimpico on 16 February 2011 were:
Roma: Doni, Cassetti, Burdisso, Mexès, Riise (Castellini 46), Taddei, De Rossi, Perrotta, Ménez, Totti, Vučinić (Borriello 68).
Shakhtar: Pyatov, Srna, Chygrynskiy, Rakitskiy, Raţ, Hübschman, Mkhitaryan (Vitsenets 78), Douglas Costa (Eduardo 66), Jádson (Alex Teixeira 85), Willian, Luiz Adriano.

• Mircea Lucescu's team completed the job back in Donetsk thanks to Willian's double (18, 58), either side of Marco Borriello's 28th-minute penalty miss for the visitors, and a late Eduardo effort (87). Roma lost defender Philippe Mexès to a second yellow card four minutes before half-time.

• Taras Stepanenko was an unused Shakhtar substitute in both legs.

• When the teams met in the 2006/07 UEFA Champions League group stage, Shakhtar won 1-0 at home thanks to Ciprian Marica's 61st-minute goal.

• Roma were 4-0 victors in Italy, Rodrigo Taddei, Francesco Totti, Daniele De Rossi and David Pizarro all scoring in the final 24 minutes.

• The teams for the Stadio Olimpico game on 12 September 2006 were:
Roma: Doni, Panucci, Ferrari, Chivu, Tonetto, De Rossi, Aquilani (Pizarro 62), Taddei, Perrotta, Mancini (Cassetti 87), Totti (Montella 80).
Shakhtar: Shutkov, Srna, Hübschman, Lewandowski, Raţ, Matuzalém (Gai 72, Jádson 81), Tymoshchuk, Duljaj, Marica, Elano, Brandão
(Aghahowa 63).

Match background

Roma
• Roma's round of 16 record is W2 L3. They beat Olympique Lyonnais (2006/07) and Real Madrid CF (2007/08) in their first two appearances, but have since lost to Arsenal FC (2008/09), Shakhtar (2010/11) and Madrid (2015/16).

• Roma have lost their last five matches in the round of 16. They were beaten 2-0 both home and away by Madrid two seasons ago

• The Giallorossi have played two other home games with Ukrainian visitors, both against FC Dynamo Kyiv. The teams' meeting in the 2004/05 group stage ended in a 3-0 forfeit win for Dynamo after the match was abandoned at half-time; Simone Perrotta and Totti got the goals as Roma beat Dynamo 2-0 in Italy in the 2007/08 group stage.

• Roma's record at home to visitors from Ukraine is therefore W2 L2. Overall against Ukraine clubs it is W3 L6. That 2010/11 tie with Shakhtar is their sole knockout contest before this one.

• The 2-1 victory at Qarabağ FK on matchday two was Roma's first win in eight UEFA Champions League matches, home and away and including qualifying, since a 3-2 home victory over Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 4 November 2015. Matchday four's 3-0 scalp of Chelsea FC and the 1-0 home win against Qarabağ in their last group fixture means they have now won only four of their last 22 games in the competition (D8 L10).

• Roma drew 0-0 at home to Club Atlético de Madrid on matchday one this season. Despite the defeats of Chelsea and Qarabağ, Roma have won just three of their last ten home matches in the UEFA Champions League – qualifying included – losing four.

• Their tally of 11 points was the lowest total among this season's eight group winners.

• Roma's most recent away first-leg defeat, against Olympique Lyonnais in last season's UEFA Europa League round of 16 (2-4), contributed to a 5-4 aggregate loss – giving them the aggregate record W6 L14 when they lost the first leg away, including defeats in the last six such ties.

• The Italian club have won one and lost one of the ties in which they went down 2-1 away from home in the first game. They beat Brøndby IF 3-1 in the second leg of the 1995/96 UEFA Cup third round but lost 2-1 at home to Club Atlético de Madrid in the quarter-finals of the same competition in 1998/99.

• Roma's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L3:
6-7 v Arsenal FC, 2008/09 UEFA Champions League round of 16
3-4 v Real Zaragoza, 1986/87 European Cup Winners' Cup first round
3-4 v Liverpool FC, 1983/84 European Champion Clubs' Cup final
4-2 v IFK Norrköping, 1982/83 UEFA Cup second round

Shakhtar
• Since that 2011 win against Roma, Shakhtar have lost on both their last-16 appearances: against Borussia Dortmund in 2012/13 (2-2 home, 0-3 away) and FC Bayern München in 2014/15 (0-0 home, 0-7 away). The second-leg loss to Bayern is their heaviest European defeat.

• The Ukrainian side have therefore lost their last two round of 16 away games in the UEFA Champions League, conceding ten goals and scoring none.

Shakhtar celebrate Fred's first-leg winner

• The Pitmen's record in two-legged knockout ties against Serie A clubs is W1 L3, with that 2010/11 defeat of Roma their sole aggregate success.

• Shakhtar have already suffered a heavy defeat away to a Serie A side this season, going down 3-0 at SSC Napoli on matchday five – although they did beat the same opponents 2-1 at home in Kharkiv –  to leave them with the record W1 D2 L7 in Italy, that 2011 win at Roma their only victory.

• Paulo Fonseca's side registered a win and two defeats in their Group F away fixtures, losing 2-0 at Manchester City on matchday two before a 2-1 success at Feyenoord ahead of the loss in Naples.

• Shakhtar had won their previous five European away games before losing at City, and have been victorious in nine of their last 13 matches outside Ukraine, losing the other four.

• The Pitmen have won 15 of the 19 UEFA competition ties in which they were victorious in the home first leg, although they lost the most recent, against BSC Young Boys in last season's third qualifying round (2-0 home, 0-2 away, 2-4 penalties). That ended a run of seven straight aggregate successes after a home first-leg victory, including wins against Tottenham Hotspur FC and Olympique de Marseille in the triumphant 2008/09 UEFA Cup campaign.

• When winning 2-1 at home in the first leg, Shakhtar's aggregate record is W1 L1. They were knocked out by AS Monaco FC in the 1979/80 UEFA Cup first round (0-2 away) but beat Birkirkara FC in the first qualifying round of the 1998/99 UEFA Cup (4-0 away).

• Shakhtar lost their only previous UEFA penalty shoot-out:
1-4 v Club Brugge KV, 2002/03 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round

Head coach Only this chapter

Eusebio Di Francesco

Date of birth: 8 September 1969
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Empoli FC, AS Lucchese-Libertas, Piacenza FC (twice), AS Roma, AC Ancona, Perugia Calcio
Coaching career: SS Virtus Lanciano 1924, Pescara Calcio, US Lecce, US Sassuolo Calcio (twice), AS Roma

• A pacy winger known as 'Turbo', Di Francesco came through Empoli's youth system, making his Serie A debut in 1987/88. His career really took off at Piacenza between 1995 and 1997, when he earned himself a move to Roma. Transformed into a midfielder by Zdeněk Zeman, he spent four seasons at the Stadio Olimpico, winning the 2000/01 Scudetto although he played only five games that campaign.

• Having retired in 2005 after two more seasons at Piacenza and spells with Ancona and Perugia, Di Francesco – who won 12 caps for Italy – spent a year as a Roma director but the lure of coaching proved strong; that new venture began in his native Abruzzo, first with a brief stint at Lanciano before two campaigns with Pescara.

• Was appointed Lecce coach ahead of 2011/12 for his first Serie A experience, though it proved brief as Di Francesco was sacked after just 13 matches with his side bottom of the table.

• Dropped back into Serie B the following season; a huge Zeman fan, Di Francesco – named after Portuguese legend Eusébio – had a brilliant start with Sassuolo using his mentor's 4-3-3 system and led the team from the Modena area into Serie A for the first time.

• Di Francesco, whose son Federico plays as a winger for Bologna, coached Sassuolo in Serie A for four consecutive campaigns, although the first featured a short interruption as he was replaced for five games by Alberto Malesani, only to return and help the side avoid relegation. Known for his entertaining attacking football, Di Francesco steered Sassuolo to a first UEFA Europa League qualification by finishing sixth in Serie A in 2015/16 before replacing Luciano Spalletti as Roma coach in June 2017.

Paulo Fonseca

Date of birth: 5 March 1973
Nationality: Portuguese
Playing career: FC Barreirense, Leça FC, CF Os Belenenses, CS Marítimo, Vitória SC, CF Estrela da Amadora
Coaching career: CF Estrela da Amadora (youth), SU 1º Dezembro, Odivelas FC, CD Pinhalnovense, CD Aves, FC Paços de Ferreira (twice), FC Porto, SC Braga, FC Shakhtar Donetsk

• A central defender during his playing days, he was signed by Porto in 1995/96 but never trained or played for the Dragons as he was immediately loaned to Leça; eventually moved to Vitória Guimarães after further spells with Belenenses and Marítimo.

• Hung up his boots aged 32 at Estrela da Amadora and started coaching the club's youth teams the following season before taking his first senior job at fourth-tier SU 1º Dezembro in 2007.

• Impressed by guiding third division Pinhalnovense to the quarter-finals of the Portuguese Cup in 2009/10 and 2010/11, when his side lost 2-0 away to Porto.

• Assumed the reins at Aves and steered the northern club to third place in the second division and another cup quarter-final, prompting Paços de Ferreira to appoint him. Rewarded that faith by earning a third-place finish in 2012/13, Paços's best-ever placing in the Portuguese top flight, and a UEFA Champions League play-off berth.

• On 10 June 2013 he signed a two-year deal to coach champions Porto, but left the following March. After a return to Paços de Ferreira, led Braga to fourth place in the league and victory in the Portuguese Cup in 2015/16 before replacing the long-serving Mircea Lucescu as Shakhtar coach; won a league and cup double in his first campaign in Ukraine.

Competition facts Only this chapter

UEFA Champions League knockout stage: Did you know?

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 41 times, including AS Roma in this season's round of 16. Only twice – AFC Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos FC in the 1995/96 semi-finals and FC Internazionale Milano's victory against FC Bayern München in the 2010/11 round of 16 – has a side progressed after a home first-leg loss.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by FC Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by RC Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home.

• Twenty-nine ties have been decided on away goals, including ten where the triumphant team lost the first leg.

• In all, 28 ties have required extra time. Twelve have been settled by extra time alone: five round of 16 encounters, five quarter-finals including Real Madrid CF-FC Bayern München in 2016/17, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool FC, and the 2013/14 final.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Olympique Lyonnais on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties.

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Club Atlético de Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid CF's defeat of Manchester City FC in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool FC (versus FC Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş JK) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at FC Schalke 04 in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16. Bayern eventually beat Sporting 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie.

• Bayern hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match having beaten both FC Basel 1893 (2011/12) and FC Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to lift the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburger SV 1983), José Mourinho (FC Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Only two sides have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome). Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in FC Barcelona's 7-1 triumph against Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat reproduced by FC Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at FC BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Eleven more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine goals in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15 and Ronaldo himself equalled in 2017/18. Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi and Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against Manchester City FC on matchday three of the 2016/17 competition was his seventh in the competition, a record Ronaldo matched against Club Atlético de Madrid in the 2016/17 semi-finals.

• SS Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete at this level, having been aged 43 years and 252 days when he figured against Madrid on matchday six of the 2007/08 edition.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years and 59 days, in AS Roma's 1-1 draw at PFC CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years and 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Celestine Babayaro is the youngest player to have appeared – he was 16 years and 87 days when he started for RSC Anderlecht against FC Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994. He was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Peter Ofori-Quaye is the youngest player to have scored, aged 17 years and 195 days, in Olympiacos FC's 5-1 reverse at Rosenborg BK on 1 October 1997.
